re: Poker & PF Line Check
I've forgotten the all-in raise rule. Is it that you can't reraise if the all-in was less than the previous raise or is it if the all-in was less than half the previous raise?
Anyhow, if it's legal to shove here, I'd shove.
I'd say the only reason to just call with AKs here is to give yourself a chance to make a better hand fold after the flop. However, there's really no chance of that, because you'd be giving better than 5:1 on a call if you shoved the flop. Even if the odds
were less generous, you're in position after the flop, meaning he could shove before you get the chance to try to make him fold.
It's tempting to think that it's more profitable to give yourself a chance to get the money in after hitting an ace or king on the flop. However, if there's a 100% chance that you and your opponent will both get all your chips in on the next street, it has no impact on the outcome if you get the chips in now or then.
P.S. - I just thought of another reason to call. There's a small chance that your opponent will check down the best hand the whole way and you'll save money in the cases where you lose. However, that seems nearly impossible to me. If he's that crappy a player that he'd just check down a pair, then there's probably also a chance he has AQ and you have him crushed. So I still say just get it in.
